Weirdomusic - What were we thinking?
This collection was put together in october 2001 to celebrate the 33rd birthday of guitarist Marco Dörenberg.
All tracks recorded in 1990 and 1991.
All keyboards by Marco Kalnenek. All guitars by Marco Dörenberg.
Some tracks appear on other releases from the Weirdomusic Archives, but on this release most tracks have short spoken word segments added at the end.
Weirdomusic is the nom-de-plume of 35 year old Marco Kalnenek from Heerlen, the Netherlands. The name was first used for his 1992 cassette release Someweirdomusic and is now the name of Marco's website Weirdomusic.com and all related musical activities.
Marco started playing the piano at age 9. His first band Foolish Behaviour was formed around 1982, when he started jamming and recording tapes with his pal "Deurie" (Marco Dörenberg) and assorted other friends. Hundreds of hours of music and other noises were recorded in the 12 years that followed. A few cassettes and cd-r's were privately released and a couple of tracks turned up on compilations made by other people.
In 1994 Marco's interest in writing and recording music started to fade, mainly due to his bad experiences at the Conservatory of Music in Maastricht, where he studied jazz piano for 6 years between 1987 and 1993. Most of Weirdomusic's home recordings from 1982-1994 still survive in his cassette archive and will hopefully be transferred to cd-r in the not too distant future.
In 2001 two older recordings were remixed by Dutch musician Ton Rückert and Japanese dj Hideo Nakai for an as yet unreleased cd-compilation of Weirdomusic's work. Meanwhile Marco has been experimenting with pc based composing and recording. His first new recording in nearly 10 years was released on the Comfort Stand label in april 2004.
